Why has the Watchtower missed the date of Armageddon every time it predicted it?

Why did Armageddon fail to come in 1975 as the Watchtower predicted?

In Kingdom Ministry, May 1974, the world’s end was said to be ‘so very near’ that JWs were commended who sold ‘their homes and property’ to devote themselves to full-time service in ‘the short time remaining before the wicked world’s end’. (p 3)

In 1975 they said, ‘The fulfillment . . . is immediately ahead of us.’ (Man’s Salvation out of World Distress at Hand, p 312)

In 1975 they said, ‘Very short must be the time that remains . . .’.’ (Ibid p 349)

1975 came and went, thus discouraging and embarrassing the WT and JWs. Yet from 1976 to today the WT still says Armageddon and the end of the world is very near.

Conclusion: If the WT has been wrong on every prediction, how can anybody trust it?

Question: Why has the WT missed the date of Armageddon every time it predicted it?

The WT has not only lied to people they call ‘God’s enemies’, but they have lied to their own

After reading these WT false prophecies, and its own admission that it lied, how can the WT be trusted any more?

Has the Watchtower ever lied, covered up, or changed doctrines and dates?

If God speaks through the WT, then He must change His mind very often.

Consider the following changes in dates, prophecies and doctrines:

1. They changed the beginning of the ‘time of the end’ from 1799 to 1914;
2. They changed the date of the second coming of Christ from 1874 to 1914;
3. They changed the nature of Christ’s return from earthly visible to heavenly and invisible;
4. They changed the end of the 6000 years of creation from 1872 to 1975;
5. They changed vaccination from being forbidden to being permitted;
6. They changed the ‘Faithful and wise servant’ from C T Russell to the WT Society;
7. They changed from allowing worship of Jesus to forbidding it;
8. They changed their view of Israel from literal national to spiritual of all believers.

Why so many changes?

Answer: Since the predicted events didn’t happen, they covered up their false prophecies to hide the fact that God really hadn’t spoken through the Watchtower Society.

Do their false prophecies support their claim of spiritual enlightenment and guidance?

What a joke! The WT Society has mislead millions of people in claiming it is God’s sole channel of communication on earth today.


Rutherford believed that God’s Holy Spirit had ceased to function as his teacher, and had been replaced by angels who taught him in his mind.(WT, Sept 1,1930,p.263 & Feb 1,1935,p.41)

Today the leaders claim that both the Holy Spirit, and angels communicate information to them. (WT, March 1, 1972, p.155 and Aug 1, 1987, p.19)

Conclusion: False prophecies lead us to conclude that the Watchtower is receiving its information from demons, rather than from God.

Then the wt should not have made the predictions if they didn't know. This isn't what happened though is it?

C. J. Woodworth was very important for the WT, so Important that we see him in the photo with the governing body  ... together with Rotherford in the book Proclaimers. So good brother he was that the WT chose him to write the 7th volume of the Studies of the Scriptures ... the Finished Mystery. But what is very interesting is that he was also under the influence of the demons ... he even admitted it in one convention and we have his words in writing -  Thirteenth Souvenir Convention Report, page 274.
While on the stand he also made advertisement of the books of the also demonic author (and worldly person)  Mary Baker Eddy. So when Jesus came as king in 1919 He would never chose a person like Woodworth. Yes but the WT put him in the position of the editor of Jehovah's magazines from 1919 until 1946. This is how the spiritual food came to Jehovah's witnesses except this food was not from Jehovah but from demons.

In light of Gianis' comment, would the spiritual food being served now be from God…or Satan?   I do believe Jesus.Defender nailed it:

“Conclusion: False prophecies lead us to conclude that the Watchtower is receiving its information from demons, rather than from God.”

Are these anointed leaders who have consistently desired to set dates of Christ's arrival hearing what the spirit says?

“ That, however, is not the way of life you learned  when you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus.  You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires;  to be made new in the attitude of your minds;  and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body.”  Eph 4:20-25

There are no excuses for the leaders of the Watchtower.  They have mislead thousands of lives who have hung on to every changing doctrine coming through their scheming mouth.

“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.  Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. “  Eph 4:14-16

It's seems hard to believe that such beauty and rhythm in the organization could be anything other than blessed by God, even though all know each prophesy has failed!   Who is able to blind us from the TRUTH that is Christ, but the Lord of the darkness?

"Therefore, since through God's mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart.  Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God.  On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone's conscience in the sight of God.  And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.  The god of the age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.  For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake.  For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God's glory displayed in the face of Christ." 2 Cor 4:1-6

....and not through any organization.  The organization preaches of itself and its glory, with the "faithful and discreet slave" preaching of itself as well.

    • I dunno. The trick would be to persuade them they really are assets and not just the next UN NGO bright idea.
    • Of course, Bitcoin is about believing in an irrational fantasy … much like Santa Clause controlling the global economy in the month of December. Or the true value of U.S. Currency, with a 33 TRILLION DOLLAR NATIONAL DEBT!! Let's start from the beginning to calculate the length of a string of one hundred dollar bills that would equal 33 trillion dollars. First, let's find out how many one hundred dollar bills are in 33 trillion dollars: 33 trillion dollars = 33,000,000,000,000 dollars Number of one hundred dollar bills = 33,000,000,000,000 / 100 = 330,000,000,000, or 3.3 x 10^11 one hundred dollar bills. Now, let's calculate the length of a single one hundred dollar bill. The dimensions of a U.S. one hundred dollar bill are approximately 2.61 inches in width and 6.14 inches in length. To convert the length to miles, we'll divide by 63,360 (since there are 63,360 inches in a mile): Length of a single one hundred dollar bill = 6.14 inches / 63,360 ≈ 0.0000966 miles. Now, let's find the total length of the string of one hundred dollar bills: Total length = (3.3 x 10^11 one hundred dollar bills) x (0.0000966 miles per bill) Total length ≈ 31,878,000 miles. So, a string of one hundred dollar bills that would equal 33 trillion dollars is approximately 31,878,000 miles long. The result of the division 31,878,000 miles, divided by 240,000 miles, is 132.825. 240,000 miles is the approximate distance from the Earth to the Moon. So, the USA National Debt is a line of One Hundred Dollar Bills stretching 132 times PAST the distance from the Earth to the Moon !!!!! …  swoon “thunk”. …. Pudgycoin looking better to you now?
    • Especially in this age when more and more people are shopping on line, there will always be a high demand for card board boxes. That’s why my digital currency of choice is Pudgycoin …. the only digital currency based on corrugated cardboard. AND it comes in a convenient ten pound box, for easy identification. So trusted that there are no financial records to see, and one Pudgycoin is ALWAYS worth what we imagine it to be. Available at the Empire Hancock Building Penthouse Offices, where six diving boards means there is never any wait, and selected Veterinarians, and Pet Supply Stores, in some towns. Remember “Pudgycoin!, … If Things Get Really Bad, You Can Eat Them!”.
    • Someone responded to me today with this quote re: Bitcoin... made me smile. 😉 I actually wouldn't be surprised if Bethel is starting to allocate some holdings in Bitcoin as a way of preserving their assets against local governments around the world after Russia essentially just stole the Branch office. Multisig wallets across continents with many wallet addresses and hidden directors from various countries would make sense. Lawyers would have a very hard time tracking assets they don't even know exist under corporate structures and trusts they also don't know exist. 
    • The new fund will provide direct exposure to Bitcoin The fund will be managed by Nomura’s digital asset and blockchain venture arm Laser Capital Bringing more institutional capital into Bitcoin is one of the most important new catalysts on the horizon for future price appreciation and widespread adoption of Bitcoin as its own asset class If Japan follows a similar trend to the United States then this new Bitcoin fund will likely set off a domino effect of other investment banks and asset managers wanting to launch their own Japan has recently been changing their attitude towards crypto and even announced a new proposal for certain types of businesses to be able to issue crypto assets instead of equity when raising capital https://www.thenew.money/article/japans-biggest-bank-is-coming-for-crypto
